JANUARY 8TH-28TH

From the beginning of C3 Toronto, we have made it a priority to seek GOD FIRST in prayer. We will do this collectively as a church in January 2018 through 21 Days of Prayer. This month is intentional, as we begin a new season of the year. Together, we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world.

Prayer meetings will be held each morning for 1 hour in two locations:

EAST / 73 Bertmount Ave

WEST / 986 Bloor St W

Monday-Friday 6am // Saturday 9am

East Prayer

West Prayer

TIMING OF A FAST

We encourage fasting for 21 days in the month of January. This is part of a season of focused prayer as a church community. You may also choose to fast at other times during the year for your own spiritual development. It’s very typical to fast a single meal, a whole day, or three days or more. The timing of your fast is not as important as the strength of your focus on Him as you fast.

TYPES OF FASTS

COMPLETE FAST

This fast calls for drinking only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.

 SELECTIVE FAST

This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, or bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.

PARTIAL FAST

This fast is sometimes called the Jewish Fast and involves abstaining from eating any type of food in the morning and afternoon. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.

SOUL FAST

This fast is common for those who do not have much experience fasting food, who have health issues that prevent them from fasting food, or who wish to refocus certain areas of their life that are out of balance. For instance, someone might select to abstain from using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast, and then choose to carefully bring that element back into their life in an orderly fashion at the conclusion of the fast.
